Several months ago I started an online petition to ask that industrial wind turbines be placed along the GTA shoreline from Hamilton to Oshawa. There are several reasons why this would make sense.
But when it comes to McGuinty’s wind energy policies, enviro groups and the media fall strangely silent.
Rural Ontarians are immediately labelled NIMBYs and traitors to the planet for opposing wind turbines. This is hardly the case. We just think it’s time for the GTA to step up to the plate.
Perhaps rural Ontario wouldn’t feel as if it has been relegated to third-class status if the biggest energy hogs in the province took on their fair share of this green endeavour.
